Sludge metal greats Thou, who released one of the best albums of 2018 (and three EPs and a split with Ragana), revealed back in September that they'd be doing much more touring in 2019, and now the dates have finally been announced. The tour features very solid support from dark singer/songwriter Emma Ruth Rundle on several dates, a couple with ambient pop artist MJ Guider (who they also toured the West Coast with last fall), and a Philly date with MJ Guider and Screaming Females.

The tour kicks off in Nashville on March 24, and includes stops in Minneapolis, Oshkosh, Chicago, Grand Rapids, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Providence, NYC and more, before heading to the Netherlands for Roadburn 2019. The NYC show happens at Brooklyn Bazaar on April 7 with Emma Ruth Rundle on the bill. Tickets will be on sale soon.

At some of the dates (Nashville, Easthampton, Portsmouth, Roadburn), Thou and Emma will play collaborative sets. Emma, who released On Dark Horses last year, will also tour with Mono in May and June, including the Brooklyn show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 5/22 (tickets).
